Beethoven Brahms and Festive Works

December 20 4pm Winthrop

In celebration of the festive season, esteemed conductor Kristin Bowtell leads the orchestra, chorus and guest vocalists in Beethoven’s early, transcendent Mass in C. Bridging church and concert hall better than almost any other mass, many regard this strikingly modern work not only as a passionate offering to God, but also as an intensely personal response to its central liturgical texts. Also featuring Brahms’ unaccompanied Dem dunkeln Schoß der heilgen Erde and other well-known festive works, share in the joy of Christmas with sumptuous baroque choral music in this inspiring performance.
